What is Firefly, you may be asking? Oh my goodness, if you are I almost envy you because you have the opportunity to watch for the very first time one of my most favorite sci-fi series of all time. A Joss Whedon creation, the Western-in-space-style series follows the crew of the Firefly-class spaceship Serenity (also the title of a film following the same characters), a thrown-together group of rengades each fleeing or rebelling against the rather tyranical Alliance. The series had great characters, witty dialogue and entertaining and often thought-provoking episodes (which often included and produced much God-talk). The series was cancelled after only 11 episodes, but has an incredible fan base which gives it a cult status.
So, here's one blogger hoping the rumors are true.
